Do you remember what we did first week last June? I'm trying to forget, I guess it's been a while since I have revisited anything before five months ago. It's a shame, but it's the only way I know how to stop myself feeling the things that I don't wanna feel, while you remain oblivious. I've been doing badly here lately, I'm counting every brick I pass as they become the space behind me. I've been doing badly here lately, I've come full circle and the places look the same, but I can't remember any name but yours. The lonely nights they only make me feel more tired. I guess I can't complain, I've still got a bed to sleep in, an empty chair and six warm beers that I'm gonna drink alone, in this spot. I'm not leaving 'til it's dead and gone. I need to get up, I'm hungry and I want a smoke. There's places that I need to go. I've been doing badly here lately, I'm counting every brick I pass as they become the space behind me. I've been doing badly here lately, I've come full circle and the places look the same, but I can't remember any name but yours. I need you out of here, I can't take this anymore. I just can't live this way, we've been through this before and I know that you're right, I have told myself a thousand times but there's nothing better than pretending that things could get better I've been doing badly here lately, I'm counting every brick I pass, As they become the space behind me. I've been doing badly here lately, I've come full circle and the places look the same, but I can't remember any name but yours.

He was a leader of the church, a leader of the people. Disrespecting Jesus, underneath the steeple. The cross will be raised, the people be upstanding, But you will be left with nothing but handing. Alimony to your bastard children. The truth would set you free, but you wont listen. You’re an amazing disgrace, now you have to face The people who you let down and the ex-wife who will never take you back. So much for the 10 commandments (you lived imperfect lives) Everyone entrusted you (and then you went and lied) To the who loved you (until the very end) And your sacred marriage vows (that you would defend) Whoa, whoa, whoa (led you to descend) You beg for forgiveness, you lost when you prayed. You bow on your knees, then you fall on your face. Is this a human act, or is your faith? To me, it’s another amazing disgrace.

I followed in John's footsteps treading on this outside world. I know the pain he experienced and why he snapped his neck. This ain't no holiday this life of packing paper bags. This fucking new society. I held this gun right up to my throat, I questioned this "What is left for this old reject?" I tied this rope, wrapped it around my head. I thought about it, Fuck it all there must be something more. It's not over, I remember, the instructions to find my happiness. Say goodbye, I'm starting over, I had a promise and I always keep my fucking word.

Something's never change, but we're not the way we used to be. You'll get married to, a friend you knew and it's the last of you we'll see. Let's move away, a job in a different state. A million times, I'm tired of playing songs that sound this way, Are we losing touch with the things that we believed? Where once was home, is a long hallway - abandoned and lonely. Somewhere you leave your stuff, every six months - and only go to visit people that you used to know on holidays. I remember when we said we'd never be the same again. Searching for the light - a city that feels right. And as you roam, I wonder where you'll lay your head tonight. The longest road, I could never bare the load. I'm half a world away thinking of when you're coming home. Are we losing us? The connections we once had? When we don't talk, you seem okay. Can it really be so bed? I guess I'll sell your stuff, in a couple of months. Long enough for me to get it through my head - You're never coming home. I remember when we said we'd never be the same again. And I remember when we said that some things never change. Can I stay the same? Will I still lay down my life? Dreaming of an aisle seat, coffee eyes and an early morning flight. Will I be alone? Will I see you on the road? I know we said we'd never change but i guess you never know. Are we losing touch with the things that we believe? And we won't talk - you'll be okay, and I guess we'll wait and see, if we have enough, to survive next month. And you won't see me at reunions, bars or coffee shops cause I'm never coming home.
